Here are a few of the exciting rail-trails around the country that are making waves this summer. If you hear of new developments on your local rail-trail, let us know and we’ll be sure to update its TrailLink.com page!
Glacial Drumlin State Trail (Wisconsin)
Shoreline Greenway Trail (Connecticut)
Already spanning 53 miles, this rural beauty will get even better with an upcoming 5-mile extension into Madison hailed as “the missing link connecting three state trails and reaching almost from one border of Wisconsin to the other” in The Herald-Independent.
Bloomingdale Trail (Illinois)
A grand opening for a new section of this developing rail-trail was reported by WTNH News 8 earlier this summer. This scenic rail-trail is planned to one day stretch 25 miles through four quaint New England towns along the Long Island Sound.
Bicycling magazine recently wrote that the 2.7-mile rail-trail “can be considered one of the most innovative trails in the country, if not the world. It’s successful at being so many different things for so many people: a public art gallery, a garden, a bike-commuting artery, a running track, a place where kids can play away from the dangers of traffic.”
